Veloce Tours was founded by Mark Rodino in 2016 to give American car enthusiasts the opportunity to drive in the one country that still exalts the art and passion of driving. Mark is an American who grew up in Italy and learned to drive in both Italy and the US. Over the past forty years he has watched Italy develop a phenomenal road network paired up with increasingly proficient driving skills while watching America’s once vaunted infrastructure deteriorate along with the nation’s driving skills. Sadly this is reflected in the road safety statistics: Italy is now approximately 30% safer than the US.
Veloce Tours is an American company run by Americans for Americans. We look at the Italian automotive landscape through the eyes of Americans and know and understand what Americans want to see and do in Italy in a way that an Italian would not since the Italians are not familiar with Americans. They know the stereotypes. We know the people and we deliver the experience that Americans want.
